Giving the ole gal some TLC with a clean-up and re-organization so she’s all ready to be a Jeep home for Annie and I again. I’m excited to meet some of you this Sunday and I really appreciate all the positive comments and messages you all have been sending. Pumped to get back on the road and the 50 State Trip! #jadethejeep #livinginmyjeep #iamjake #50stateroadtrip #jeep #jeeplife

41 Years Young

This old girl turned 41 years old this month. With everything going on currently I have barely had a chance to start on projects yet with her but the plan is to keep her drivable and slowly restore her during my visits back in Wisconsin. Jade will always be used for living and traveling out of & I definitely don’t need 3 vehicle’s right now…I also realistically don’t have time to work on two project vehicles outside of the 50SRT…so what about Jessy then?…updates soon to come. #iamjake#wagoneer #jeep

Annie – 15 Months Old

Always by my side, Annie Banannie just turned 15 months old on the 17th! Interestingly she is the exact same size and wt she was when I adopted her at 4.5months old, about 15lbs. Her nickname is “Little Fox” because all she wants to do is hunt everything…squirrels, rabbits, birds, insects, chipmunks, mice, little kids (half kidding) you name it. My life is better because of you Annie, love you. #anniethejeepdog #dogsofinstagram #spaniel #bordercollie
